How awful must it be if your mum/dad/son/daughter/other close relative, is found guilty of a very serious crime. There are families ripped apart by this...
What are your thoughts?
Suppose it depends on your definition of serious crime
Eating the last hobnob?
Gets me bloody furious every time.
Farting under the duvet ?
And how close you are to your family to begin with
Jeez... There are times I really miss people like Corinth.
x-post caz, i was talking to the Dutch oven biscuit eaters.

How awful: Very
My thoughts: I pity the family involved, also you cannot just turn love of your family on or off like a switch. Which can make life bloody hard.
Often the family are shunned by society as well. Very sad for them when they are innocent and being judged by the standards of their guilty relative.
In some ways it must be worse than being related to the victim.
If you are related to the victim you get automatic sympathy from people. That doesn't necessarily happen if you are related to the perpetrator. On top of that you have to deal with finding out you've been living a lie and that you don't know the person you thought you did.
Exactly... I know if it is say murder it's of course not the same... But, it must be horrible .
The question could be, 'Do you stick by them regardless', or distance yourself for the sake of your place in wider society?
It would be horrible of course but if you had the opportunity to provide your family member with an alibi, would you do it?
NO that turns you into a criminal and it also makes you pretty much as bad as the person doing the crime. Standing by them fine, what you asked ekgo is going to far. Actions have consequences and they have to live by what they did.
Family first, the law comes second. I couldn't see my family jailed
what.. even if your brother liked killing small girls?weirdo
